Miss Laura Lamont from Carrickfergus and Mr Paul Killeen from Belfast were married on 26th June 2015 at Mussenden Temple, after 12 years together. Laura is a Chartered Structural Engineer and Paul is a Housing Officer for NIHE. Paul is also a keen landscape photographer and the couple like to spend their spare time travelling and exploring, with Paul documenting it. The reception was in the nearby Drenagh Estate- another stunning venue, drinks reception in the manor house then meal and dancing in their marquee.
Their honeymoon was a USA roadtrip. Starting in San Francisco, stopping along the West Coast. Then from LA to Vegas- a scary drive through Death Valley! Finishing with five days in New York.
Laura reflects on the highlight of their special day, ‘The highlight of the day was our service in Mussenden Temple, we had both been most nervous about it – as it was the most formal part of our day. The service was simple and beautiful, with readings from our friends, and lots of tears from everyone there! Many hadn’t been in the Temple before and it was a fantastic experience for them, especially as we hit it lucky with a sunny day after a week of rain! Another highlight was Paul driving us in his vintage beetle- Herbie, from the temple to Drenagh, it was lovely to get 15 minutes alone together to catch up and reflect on what just happened!’
